A Path to Redeeming Love: A Forty-Day Devotional by Francine Rivers

A Path to Redeeming Love: A Forty-Day Devotional
ABOUT THE BOOK

This forty-day devotional based on the classic bestselling novel Redeeming Love leads you on a personal, six-week journey into God's all-consuming embrace.

We know that God loves us unconditionally. So why is it so hard to break free from the past and live in that truth? Inspired by the biblical book of Hosea, Redeeming Love introduces a love so profound that it forever changes Angel, a woman who had viewed herself as broken beyond redemption. With A Path to Redeeming Love: A 40-Day Devotional, you can immerse yourself daily in the truth of God's unshakable love for you.

Personal essays from Francine explore key themes from the novel--Rejected, Resigned, Rescued, Redeemed, Reconciled, Restored--inspired by Scripture. In addition, each daily devotion includes:

- an excerpt from Redeeming Love, Angel and Michael Hosea's classic love story
- Bible verses for meditation
- prompts for Bible study, prayer, and journaling to enhance reflection and application

Whether you feel stuck or hurt, confused or lost--or simply want to experience more deeply God's boundless grace--this devotional invites you into a transformative understanding of God's redeeming love.


MY THOUGHTS.....

I am apparently one of the few people who hasn't read it yet but, over and over, I've read glowing reviews of Redeeming Love, the historical fiction novel written by Francine Rivers in 1991. When I saw a chance to review a devotional devoted to this book, I immediately applied for the launch team. In A Path to Redeeming Love, Rivers digs deeper into this story and shares her thoughts about the love story of Homer and Gomez that is found in the Old Testament. Redeeming Love is inspired by the Book of Hosea and its central theme is the redeeming love of God towards sinners.

A Path to Redeeming Love has forty devotions divided into six sections and each devotion starts with a scene from Redeeming Love. These snippets show Sarah/Angel's story as she goes from Rejected, Resigned, Rescued, Redeemed, Reconciled, and finally, Restored. Rivers shares appropriate scripture as she relates how God has worked in her own life and we readers are allowed to reflect how our Heavenly Father has done the same for us. Our circumstances may not be as startling as Angel's but we have all  been the benefactors of God's love. Each devotion concludes with a question that offers further guidance.

This wonderful devotional provides the chance to study God's Word and deepen our understanding. If you are looking for a new resource to improve your own faith journey, you will certainly want a copy of A Path to Redeeming Love. And yes, I plan to read the novel that started it all!

I received a complimentary e-copy through NetGalley but I wasn't required to write a favorable review. These are my own thoughts and opinions.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars
